In the spring, students in grades 2-9 can experience a new three-day version of Camp KSC®. Here at Kennedy Space Center, NASA's launch headquarters, we specialize in STEM learning at its best, offering hands-on science, technology, engineering and math activities. This program introduces campers to the elements of rocket propulsion and design, the history of NASA and the brilliant minds who made it all possible. 

Tuition is $165 plus tax and includes a Camp KSC t-shirt, daily afternoon snacks*, a pizza lunch on the third day of camp and a certificate of completion. Reserve your child’s spot by calling 1.855.433.4210.

Activities 

Throughout this three-day camp, students launch self-made rockets from the launching area at the ATX Center and perform a simulated space shuttle mission to deploy a satellite or to dock their payload with the International Space Station. They “train like an astronaut” in a Multi-Axis Trainer, similar to what Mercury astronauts used in order to condition themselves for disorienting emergency situations. Older grade levels have the opportunity to climb the micro-gravity wall, simulating the effects zero-gravity has on movement and weight.** This experience also includes a trip to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. The program culminates with a graduation ceremony in the Astronaut Encounter Theater at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, where campers meet a veteran NASA astronaut and hear how he or she accomplished their dream. After the ceremony, families are welcome to explore the visitor complex until closing.
